Sharing the spirit of the season

About 200 residents, family members and guests enjoyed a special Advent visit from Archbishop George J. Lucas Dec. 7 at New Cassel Retirement Center in Omaha.

After celebrating Mass, the archbishop mingled with people in the center’s dining room and joined three staff members and three resident-volunteers for lunch.

Archbishop George J. Lucas interacts with students during Mass at Madonna School in Omaha. The Mass preceded the 53rd annual Christmas party Dec. 14 at the school, sponsored by the Father Flanagan Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians.

Hibernians’ charity brings Christmas joy

The tradition began when a member of a local fraternal organization and father of a son with special needs was looking for a way to serve others with similar challenges.

Fifty-three years later, the Father Flanagan Division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians is still bringing Christmas joy to the hearts of students at Madonna School in Omaha. 

Holy Cross 6th-grader uses imagination, technique to win first place in art contest

Nice details and use of techniques that showed a lot of effort and craftsmanship – and it told the story. 

Those were some of the reasons judges chose Omaha Holy Cross School sixth-grader Vivianna Schlueter’s artwork as winner of her age category (grades four through six) and as grand prize winner in this year’s Catholic Voice Colors of Christmas art contest.
